Downtown Indianapolis' new bus transit center will not be completed by the end of the year as IndyGo had initially hoped. The $23 million project is behind schedule and over budget because archaeological findings on the site. Construction crews have uncovered foundations and other artifacts from the turn of the last century. They belong to buildings once standing south of the city-county building.
IndyGo CEO Mike Terry told a City-County Council committee Wednesday that he does not have a new completion date as historical reviews are on-going. He says the transit authority has enough money in reserves to cover the added costs of the project. Terry said the delays affect the bus bays, not the building, and he hopes IndyGo's customer service operations should still be able to move in on schedule.
